Heather Maltman. Nikki Gogan. Matty J. Tara Pavlovic. Any of those people ring a bell? Yep, they're all people whose names are practically synonymous with heartbreak after each one was shockingly dumped in their respective seasons of The Bachelor or The Bachelorette. It's a tale as old as time: the fan favourite of the year is rarely the person left standing at the end. As much as us Bachie tragics have come to expect it, it doesn't make saying an untimely goodbye to a beloved contestant any easier. This year, it is Elly Miles who will sadly go down in history as the one no one expected to leave this soon.

After hitting it off with Matt Agnew from day dot and remaining a firm frontrunner for the majority of her journey, it seems it was Elly's decision to tell Matt about her less than positive opinions of Abbie Chatfield that may have led to her demise. As much as Elly insisted she was only acting in Matt's best interests by informing him of her belief that Abbie was not there for the right reasons, he instead appeared frustrated by her revelations. "I don't mind being made aware of things others have said or done, but this feels more like "I think this" or "this is my opinion of this girl . . . it doesn't really help me," he said at the time.

Although their final alone time did not go as Matt had planned due to the focus on another contestant, it still appeared as though their strong history would pull Elly through to the hometown visits. Alas, much to everyone bar Matt's shock, Elly was sent packing at the next rose ceremony.

In an emotional farewell, Matt declared saying goodbye to Elly was "easily the hardest" decision he'd made so far. "I had to make a decision based on strength of connections and that's it," he added, seemingly anticipating the women would the outcome was influenced by what Elly had said about Abbie.

"I think Abbie has really pulled the wool over his eyes and it could be her at the end of it," declared Elly in her parting words, and time will tell whether she is right.
